This study is no joke. It found that while a sense of humor may help you get lucky, it won’t help you find true love. Women are attracted to funny guys for hook-ups, but not for long-term relationships. As researchers put it, “male wit nurtures an impression of not being serious or willing to invest in a mate." It’s true that being able to crack people up is a great flirting tactic (and often a successful one), but we can’t imagine very many women would like to be married to a stick in the mud ‘til death do them part.
